(a) On all avenues extending in an east and west direction the even numbers shall be on the north side of said avenues and the odd numbers on the south side of said avenues; on all streets extending in a north and south direction the even numbers shall be on the west side of said streets and the odd numbers on the east side of said streets. Diagonal streets and boulevards not extending directly east, west, north, or south, shall conform as nearly as practicable with the foregoing provisions.
(b) In all blocks adjoining Norfolk Avenue the numbers shall commence with one hundred (100) both north and south, shall continue with the next higher multiple of one hundred (100) for each block more distant from Norfolk Avenue. In all blocks adjoining First Street the numbers shall commence with one hundred (100) both east and west, and shall continue with the next higher multiple of one hundred (100) for each block more distant from First Street. These provisions shall be carried out insofar as is practicable, dependent, however, on the uniformity and regularity of the streets and avenues in the city. At each street or avenue extending continuously through and across the entire city, the same series of numbers shall be used throughout the entire length of said street or avenue, regardless of any attempt to maintain continuity in the numbering.
(c) In all blocks not exceeding one thousand (1,000) feet in length, a separate and distinct number, using no fractions or prefixes, shall be allocated to each forty-five (45) linear feet of property abutting upon any street or avenue, regardless of the platted or recorded dimension of any lot, sub-lot, tax-lot, or other land; provided however, that on Norfolk Avenue, Madison Avenue, Braasch Avenue and connecting streets between Madison and Braasch Avenue from First Street to Eighth Street the numbers shall be designated by the city engineer in conformity with the exact widths of the several properties. These numbers shall be allotted consecutively commencing at the end of the block nearest to Norfolk Avenue or First Street, alternating odd and even numbers as set forth herein. One property may be allotted more than one number, and in this case the property owner may select any of the numbers so allotted. At corners of blocks, a number shall be allotted for both the street and the avenue sides of same. Owners may use whichever of the two (2) numbers he chooses to select. In the event that there may be more than one block on one side of a street fronting only one block on the opposite side of same street, the numbers directly opposite or across the street from each other shall be in the same series of hundreds, even though this requires the use of more than one series of hundreds in the same block, or carrying same series of hundreds through more than one block. In any block of over one thousand (1,000) feet length it will be necessary to use two (2) or more series of hundreds.
